I don’t recall which hard pipe brands I bought from ECS. Long hours at work have slowed down this project but I will check the packing lists when I pressure test the system. When I checked the hard pipes they looked well made.

Would you recommend bleeding off some coolant and disconnecting the fitting and clean, lube and reconnecting it? I remember wondering if I should have heard a more distinct snap when I put it back together the first time.

M54 head gasket project

Ask EOD about this concept. I think he had a hose pop off after the system built up pressure.

I pumped up the system to 10 psi and then wiggled the connection between the hose and the hard pipe. Definitely a problem area. I may take off the intake to get a better look.

Took the intake off and the connection between the new OEM BMW coolant pipe and the old Conti heater hose is definitely sloppy. New heater hose on order. Getting a fast turnaround from online parts suppliers these days is an issue. So it sits for a bit.
